Day 1 route deja vu solved!

Postby Force 5 Robert » Wed Aug 31, 2011 12:31 pm

For weeks now I have looked at the maps on occasion just to satisfy my excitement for this years CO. Often I looked at day 1 and thought, "Man it seems like I have done this before!"

Until now, it puzzled me. I realized today though that much of this route is the same as day 2 of the July 2006 weekend ride! I looked up the old 2006 map to check. That was my infamous first Cycle Oregon and that day was 110 degrees of hell.

I looked through my pictures of "CO 2006 day 2" and relived a lot of the route. 8)

Hopefully when you do relive it the temperature is much cooler.

I remember climbing Rice Hill in that heat. Supposedly someone took the temp off the pavement and said it read 140.
